Newington's results in the 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme were commendable and complete the picture of a high performing Year 12 of 2019.
A Perfect Score
Congratulations to Angus Waldon who this year achieved a perfect IB score of 45/45 converting to an ATAR of 99.95.
This caps years of outstanding academic achievement for Angus, who was awarded Academic Colours in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and has been previously recognised at national level for his efforts in Mathematics, Geography and Chemistry.
Angus has been involved in the Red Shield Door Knock Appeal and helping the homeless, and was one of the driving forces in a charity night to raise money for the Asylum Seekers Centre.
Jonathan Lee achieved an IB mark of 44 - the equivalent of an ATAR of 99.85.
Sixty-eight per cent of our IB students achieved a mark that is the ATAR equivalent of 90 or over.
Underpinning Newington’s results were some exceptional individual performances across all subjects. Several boys really dug deep and lifted their marks well beyond their own expectations.
A strong and diverse cohort
These strong results across the whole cohort mean Newington’s IB Diploma Graduates achieved a median score of 37, equating to an ATAR of 95.45.
As ever, our IB cohort dipped into an astounding range of subjects for their compulsory 4000-word extended essays. Topics included Latin love poetry, the environmental impact of the Northern Beaches Hospital and Napoleon’s wars in Germany.
Celebrating our Success
Graduates from 2019 gathered for afternoon tea at Newington College to celebrate their results. Staff joined boys to hear about plans to travel overseas or study across a wide variety of university programs.
We wish all our Year 12 2019 boys the best for all that lies beyond the gates and look forward to hearing what comes next for them as they continue to discover what’s possible.
